NHS organisations are being invited to take part in a free type 2 diabetes remission consultation to mark the anniversary of the Low Carb Program.

More than 425,000 people have registered with the pioneering and award-winning Low-Carb Program since it was launched by Diabetes Digital Media (DDM) on World Diabetes Day in 2015.

The behaviour change platform has disrupted and redefined the landscape of type 2 diabetes management.

Participants lower their HbA1c, lose weight and reduce their type 2 diabetes medication, according a study published by the Journal of Medical Internet Research in 2018.

The app is available via the NHS Apps Library and has been approved to meet NHS quality standards for safety, usability and accessibility. It also has QISMET approval for all programme streams meaning it can be prescribed on the NHS.

Earlier this year, the Low Carb Program was selected by the NHS Innovation Accelerator, to scale type 2 diabetes remission within primary care. The NHS Innovation Accelerator works to scale high impact, evidence-based innovations across the NHS and wider healthcare system to adopt initiatives to support the NHS Long Term Plan.

Dr Campbell Murdoch, Chief Medical Officer at DDM, led the authorship of a Demedication Protocol in the BJGP  in July as a direct response to the thousands of people within the platform.

Low carb GP, Dr David Unwin saves his practice more than £40,000 in reduced medication costs every year thanks to the low carb approach.

An opportunity to improve outcomes

The platform can help with supporting your weight management, type 2 diabetes structured education and type 2 diabetes prevention services.

There is no one size that fits all when it comes to diet, and it is the same with NHS commissioning. As part of your consultation, we’ll cover everything from how to use the platform to patient engagement, healthcare professional training to implementation support and commissioning models. 

Learn more about how you can empower your patients to reduce their weight, HbA1c and medication dependency with the NHS-approved Low Carb Program serving over 425,000 members since 2015.
